I interviewed film historians, horror authors, and movie buffs in this article for The Daily Dead about the enduring fandom of the Universal Monsters.
Jason Ginsburg's second @FakeThemePark book delves deeper into the craziness of the world's most unusual (and yet familiar) park. From Halloween to trained animals to upset guests, "You Must Be This Tall to Exit the Park" cleverly satirizes everything you love and hate about theme parks. Along with classic posts from Ginsburg's popular Twitter and Facebook accounts, this book includes new material, such as the park's Cast Member orientation film, a foreword by Princess Rainbow, and an interview with legendary park founder Murph Gantly. A must for any Disneyphile, movie buff or coaster fan.
For years, @FakeThemePark has been skewering the theme park industry. Now, its creator, former Universal Studios tour guide Jason Ginsburg, has combined the craziest tweets and Facebook posts with all-new material, including a timeline of park history and the first-ever interview with all the Park Princesses. From rides that never start to lines that never end, from the world's shortest coaster to the world's highest ticket price, this first @FakeThemePark book is a must for any fan of theme parks?or anybody (un)lucky enough to work at one.
Funny but effective theme park advice based on my years at Universal Studios Hollywood.
